My pics too!!!

I feel like I have a sad little plot in comparison LOL!

But here we go!! I planted on Friday!! I have Tomatoes, Zuchinni, a few more squashes, bell peppers, beans (white and green) and watermelon, canteloupe and some pumpkins. Most of the squash has already perished it seems Sad I think they were in their little pots too long. But I am holding out to see if they come back to life!!!

Also, in the corner (you cant see from these pics) is my Sons MEGA cabbage... if grown right? It can reach up to 50 lbs..... it is more of a project than for food, obviously. But I promised to give it a try! Its a national program they do every year for 3rd graders!

I have MORE pics... but photobucket decided to take a crap on me.. I will come back with more!!!

AND>> I will jsut keep updating here!

Yay! It looks wonderful. Give it some time and it will grow. I have had my stuff growing for a month already. I also have had to get creative with working with a very small space. I have found most of my ideas on Pinterest.

A few days can work wonders. If they wilt too much, make them a little shade from the sun. I'd put a shingle up or cover with a gallon pot for part of the day.

Thanks Jules! I had already "weaned" them to full sun as seedlings.. but? I think they just were in those little black pots a little too long Sad That one last AHHAHAHA frost made us a week late for planting, and I think it did some of them in!!!

But its all good! I planted, and what God sees fit to grow? I will be thankful for Smile And of course, I can always get more LOL!!

Here is my pallet Garden!!! In order from top to bottom... Strawberries, Brussel Sprouts, herbs (chives, parsley and basil) Green onions, radishes, and 2 variety's of lettuce. I have Spinach seeds too.. but I didn't have room LOL! I DO have one more pallet though.. so we will see how this one goes! If It does well, I will get some more seeds!!!

We picked up these nice looking strawberry plants this morning!

Plastic spoons are perfect markers!

And, I picked up this nice English Lavender too.. I wasn't going to plant it.. BUT my spaghetti squash didn't make it, and I was lured by the Oh so amazing smell!! It will do good with pest control too!!

I love your pallet idea! How fun. I love gardening. The idea of moving somewhere where I can have a bigger garden is tempting, but for right now I am happy with what I have. I wish I could do corn, but I just don't have room. I am thinking of putting in a row of potatoes in between the peas and the carrots. I planted something there already, but they did not come up so I want to use the space.

Thanks!!! Pinterest, of course LOL!!!!

I want to take my other pallet and make a vertical garden... with flowers and such. But I need to see how this garden goes first! I might even get brave and put one out front.. a succulent garden! My house faces DEAD south.. so we get absolutely EVIL hateful hot sun! So far only the day lillies are happy.. and the hyacinth popped but no blooms! And the phlox is floppy at best.. but it gets wicked hot at the door.. like 110 or better from direct heat!

It gets very hot here too. On days that it is just too hot, try hosing things down with a garden hose. It is cold water and really helps.

The REDO!!!

Ok, here is the soil this morning after me turning and turning and digging and turning and chopping and soaking and turning!

Here is a closer look at the clay chunkies.. part of the reason it is so chunk is the saturation of course.. they broke up fairly easy when I hit em

All rowed up and ready for seed!!!

Planted and PRAYING Smile
